“An entertaining and surprising San Sebastián thriller that reveals unknown details about the painter Jose María Sert.” —Oscar López, director of Televisión Española’s book review program Página 2
“Sánchez hooks the reader with a plot sophisticated in its complexity yet still very easy to follow, and drives it at a frenzied pace.” —César Coca, El Correo
“The Art Restorer is a thriller in which we find mystery, intrigue, enigmas, art, greed, and love . . . that allows us to accompany the protagonist in the process of writing the novel, transforming it into a set of Russian dolls of novels within novels, successfully adding another interesting ingredient to the plot.” —El Placer de la Lectura
“Sanchez recovers one of the most questionable figures of the Franco era, Sert, and illustrates his life with vigor, reconstructing little by little his environment and his work beyond the fiction.” —Revista Krítika

Avoid this book.
Also, there were occasional odd choices of words, which made me wonder if it was a translation issue. The words worked okay, but I found myself stopping to think whether or not there was a better way to say things. The sorts of things you get from non-native speakers--not exactly wrong, but not exactly right, either.
The author creates a very believable world and then we are presented with some strange circumstances. Then the author shows us how he would develop a novel from the facts presented in the story as true circumstances. It's really hard to explain but I enjoyed the way he showed how he would create a historical novel based upon the life of an artist coming out of the the death of a friend in his real time. And of course, solve the mystery of his friend's death in the process.
Throughout this book author kept referring back to another adventure about which he had written a book. When I understood that this was his second book and he had actually written the earlier book, I really wanted to read it as well.
I'm not sure my explanation is understandable, but read the book and you will see. It is truly a fun read and the setting is georgeous.
